Social Entrepreneurship as a concept gained traction in the 1980’s and has only expanded since then. Definitions abound, but essentially, a social entrepreneur’s main goal is to offer solutions for a social problem or to create social impact. They do this through a variety of methods – business, nonprofit, and hybrid approaches. Union Theological Seminary has both accomplished alumni/ae and outstanding students who are social entrepreneurs. Five of them from across the country will share their wisdom and experiences via Zoom. Audience members will be able to submit questions ahead of time and during the webinar. Join us for an opportunity to learn about this career path!
